DIY: Pocket Inspo Cards

Sunday, September 10, 2017

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I hope you all had a great week! For today's post I thought I would switch things up a bit and share another little DIY. I haven't done one in forever... but there's no time like the present! A couple years ago, I made these cute little inspirational cards to keep with me in my purse or backpack. I don't think I realized how much I would actually end up using them! They are the best! When my heart is overwhelmed or I just need a little pick me up at school, I turn to these cards. After flipping through even a few, I feel refreshed. It's always good to remind yourself of what's really important. Well anyways, let's get on into this super simple little DIY.

A few of my Favorite pieces & words to start your week

Sunday, September 3, 2017

 Happy first Sunday in September! Oh my goodness, I am so so excited for fall! The weather has been absolutely gorgeous lately. It's so nice to step outside without sweating immediately. Ah, the transition between these two seasons is always so beautiful. Yesterday I drove to the little apple orchard in town just to get a apple cider slushy. Fall fever is a real thing, guys. Although I have been loving the cooler weather, I have been trying to get the most out of my summer wardrobe before it's too late! Today, I have a happy little outfit to share with y'all that can be worn to just about anything!

Fall Fever: A Transitional Look ft. Basics

Sunday, August 27, 2017

Happy last Sunday of August!! Once again, another month has flown by. But can we talk about how excited we are for fall for a sec?!?! Oh my goodness! I can't wait to start wearing my fav boots and chunky sweaters again. Annddd to start ordering some lattes at Starbucks... lol I can't do warm drinks in the summer. It's iced all the time for me! Fall is by far my favorite season. It's a happy time of new beginnings. For today's post, I am embracing my fall fever and I'm bringing you the perfect transitional outfit. The best part? It's made up of all basics!

Statements in All Black with Maddy

Sunday, August 20, 2017

FRIENDS!!! I'm so excited about today's post mostly because we have a special guest here on Merging Threads... my cousin (who is basically my bff), Maddy! Maddy is my fashion soul sista, so her appearance on my blog seems long over due. We are both huge lovers of black. If you ask me, black does not get the attention it deserves. Lots of people think of statement outfits as having bold patterns or interesting cuts. Maddy and I want to show that you can be just as bold & make a  sassy statement in the color black!

5 Things I Learned This Summer

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Good afternoon, friends! It's a lovely rainy Wednesday and my last day of summer. Whoa. Time has flashed before my eyes. The end of my junior year seriously feels like yesterday, but at the same time, I feel like such a different person than I was when I walked out of school that last day. I think it's crazy how much you can learn from even the smallest of experiences and how those tiny moments can so distinctly shape you into who you are. It is in times like these--seasons of change and new beginnings-- where I look back and am SO SO thankful for everything that has happened. As I look back on the past couple months, I realize that I've learned a lot. I've learned from new experiences, learned from old ones, and definitely learned from my mistakes. Today I want to take you all through my little summer reflection and share with you five things that I learned this summer.
